SYDNEY AFL ROUND 9 - Demons Win in Windy Wollongong
Article and pics by Michael Shillito

The fog closes in over the mountains

After a long weekend off for representative football, the club competition returned as the wintery weather set in. North Dalton Oval on Sunday was cold, with a stiff southerly buster having a major impact on the day's proceedings. It was a good toss for Pennant Hills to win, giving them first use of the wind.

But early on, Pennant Hills found goals hard to come by. Instead, they found themselves on the wrong end of the umpiring after giving away a string of silly free kicks and three 50m penalties in the first 10 minutes. It wasn't easy for the Demons, with Wollongong getting plenty of possession early and hassling the Demons out of several contests. And a golden chance went begging when Clint Setford gained possession in the pocket, with an open goal in front of him, but instead of running in he blazed away and hit the post. But he was to make amends at the 12-minute mark, outmarking Weavers 30 metres out to score Pennant Hills' first.

By now the Demons had hit their straps. A mark to Nick Campbell 50 metres out, but a 50m penalty turned a tricky shot into a certainty. As the clock ticked into time-on, Matt Carey received a free 45 metres out and kicked truly. Kieran Wright marked over the pack at 24 minutes and kicked truly, giving the Demons a 29-point lead at quarter time.

But as the players switched ends for the second quarter, the momentum of the match also switched. Daniel McClure opened Wollongong's goal tally with a 50m penalty. A front foot no-ball on a kick-in saw the ball kept on the Lions' forward line, where a free to Troy Bartlett cut the lead further. Another free to Dennis from point blank range and a mark 30 out in the pocket by Cameron Stanton saw the lead cut to a kick.Clint Setford scores the first goal

By now the wind had picked up further, blowing a gale to the scoreboard end. Fog was blowing down from the mountains, bringing with it a cold shower. At 26 minutes, Ricky Neels outmarked Spencer, his goal giving the Lions the lead. And as the rain got heavier, a clever snap by McConnochie on the siren extended the lead; with the crowd in the grandstand giving the home side an ovation as they left the field with hopes of an upset.

During the break, the sun came out and the fog lifted; while Mick Cousens' words to his charges ensured the Demons also lifted as the third quarter got under way. Alistair Richardson got the first, outmarking his opponent 30 metres out on the slighest of angles. Clint Setford played on, catching the Lion defences unawares and within 4 minutes the Wollongong lead had been elimintated. Just 2 minutes later, Matt Carey roved the pack and made no mistake to restore the lead for the Demons. But, although it looked at that point as though the Demons would get a run-on, some solid pressure by Wollongong was to frustrate the Demons for much of the third term. The windy conditions, although helpful when attacking the scoreboard end, wasn't a consistent breeze throughout the day, with players from both teams often finding themselves out of position when the ball in flight acted unpredictably. Nick Campbell on the lead added another for the Demons, but for much of the quarter they continued to attack but could manage only behinds. Time with the wind was running out, and with only a 17-point lead at the 25 minute mark, would it be enough?Adam McConnochie goes for a run

But as it turned out, the minute before and after the break snuffed out any hope of the upset of the season. A long-range speculator landed in the goal square, where Setford pounced and ran into an open goal to extend the Demon buffer. And from the bounce to start the final quarter, the Demon centre break found Setford who went in short to find Jon Moraitis 30 metres out. Moraitis' kick, the only goal of the day to be kicked at the city end, broke Wollongong's heart and ended any hope of victory. Even with the wind, the tired legs had no more run in them, and although Adamson got one back on the run and Stanton scored a late goal from a set shot, the Demons recorded a 21-point lead to maintain their grip on second place.

It had been a courageous effort by Wollongong. Given little chance in this match, they showed a fighting spirit and determination that caused the Demons some nervous moments; and although beaten were far from disgraced. For Pennant Hills, although they achieved the 4 points they came to get, but were given a tough workout.

 

The grand final replay at Gore Hill on Saturday saw the Crows reverse last year's result for the second time this season. The Crows led all day, extending their lead every quarter by shutting down the North Shore game; getting quick replies whenever the Bombers dared to challenge before opening the floodgates in the last term. Big Maurice Goolagong continued his impressive form on the forward line for the Crows with a bag of 4 in a result that consolidated the Crows' hold on a top-3 position, but one that sees North Shore languishing 2 games plus percentage out of the finals and facing a monumental challenge to have any hope of defending their title.

 Matt Carey finds room to move

Campbelltown visited the Village Green and stunned the locals with a strong opening quarter, and had they kicked more accurately could have had a bigger lead than the 25-point advantage they held. But, let off the hook, UNSW-ES came out firing after the quarter-time break, scoring 6 goals to 1 in the second term to hit the lead shortly before the long break. The second half was a procession; with the Bulldogs, spearheaded by 7 goals from Brad Abbott and 5 from Troy Luff, racing away to record an 83-point victory.

 

Another game where the favourites were only a kick in front at the long break was at Drummoyne Oval, where Sydney Uni held a 5-point lead over Balmain. But the second half was a different story, with the Students re-discovering their form to snap a 4-match losing streak and retain their position in the top 5. Alex Lee was the star of the show for the Students with 7 goals, while McGuirk contibuted 4 as the Students blew the scoreline out in the second half to win by 69 points in a match that, for much of the contest, looked to be much closer.

 

At Wagener Oval, East Coast jumped the locals early, running through 12 goals to 1 in the first half to put the issue beyond doubt. Having wrapped up victory, the Eagles put their cue back in the rack and scoring dried up in the second half; but the Eagles had already done enough to secure a 51-point win. Gus Seebeck with 3 goals was the Eagles' top goalscorer; but although the Eagles were already assured of victory, an opportunity to boost their percentage ahead of other top-3 challengers had gone begging.

 Kieran Wright restarts play

There were 4 one-sided matches in First Division. Manly-Warringah had an easy afternoon in defeating Macquarie Uni by 91 points, while Southern Sharks were similarly untroubled in recording a 97-point win over Camden. Penrith were 61 points too good for NorWest Jets, while UTS were inaccurate but still overcame Holroyd-Parramatta by 52 points.
